Medicare Meltdown Fast Approaching

There are only 11 days left until the new year. For Medicare patients and the physicians who care for them the year is starting out as a bust. Unless Congress acts quickly, doctors face almost a 30-percent payment cut, forcing more physicians out of Medicare and threatening the health care of 2.9 million Medicare patients and more than 870,000 military families. Physicians for the past year have urged Congress to fix the flawed funding formula used to pay doctors, which is now entangled in the fiscal cliff negotiations. So far there is no solution in sight.

Please call your U.S. Representative, and Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison. Tell them to fix Medicare so seniors, Texans with disabilities and military families can get the care they need and deserve.
